Since photography's birth, the prominence of the nude subject has played a significant role in distinguishing the work as fine art. Photographs depicting the nude have long-since held the power of authentically expressing the very essence of humanity, telling the most intriguing of stories, and often eliciting the most vulnerable of emotions. For four generations, though the subject matter and artistic voices of photographers in the Weston family may have evolved, the mastery of fine art photography that began with Edward Weston has been preserved in its entirety.
For nearly 20 years, Kim Weston has taught nude photography workshops on Wildcat Hill, his grandfather's former home and now his. The Wildcat Studio Nude Workshop, hosted 2-3 times a year by Gina and Kim Weston, is a fine art nude photography intensive. This three day workshop presents a unique opportunity, suited for both novice and experienced photographers, to explore nude photography while immersed in the Weston family's historic contributions to American photography.
